Hello! My name is Heidi Good Swiacki. I have been married to Steve for 25 years, which has been filled with laughter, trust and love. We have 2 great kids, Ashton 22 and Chris 16. I have ALS, aka Lou Gehrigs Disease. I was officially diagnosed March '05, I was just turning 45. This blog will be about a myriad of topics. I will share my ALS story which will hopefully encourage others. It will show that quality of life comes in many forms. I have to tell you up front that there will be some spiritual references. Don't be afraid or turned off by that. Since I have had ALS I have seen many miracles. Let's be realistic, who can be a happy, non-verbal,ventilated quadriplegic without Faith? I hope you will join me and make this an interesting, educational, inspirational forum. Humor and the ability to enjoy life is required! :)

Heidi passed away 3-25-13 :(

Hello, Steve here. To help with the healing process, I am going to continue on with Heidi's blog, primarily talking about our lives and how we as a family are learning to live on with Heidi's memories pushing us forward. Topics covered will be geared towards the affects ALS has on loved ones.

Update on Trial 5/26/15

Heidi, your mom and Wanda both appeared on 5/22/15 before the courts for their arraignment hearing. It has been rescheduled until June 18, 2015.There have been so many misguided comments and opinions of what may have happened that day. It has never been explained to me what happened to you. I still don't understand what motivated your mom to blame me. I want to repeat to all those who may read this, I know for a fact you did not want to die and would not have asked to have your respirator unplugged and or disconnected. 

There are some groups that feel your mother is the victim here, have they all forgotten that she changed the kid's and my life forever when she told the police that I facilitated your death? To this day, we are all still in shock and have not been able to fully grieve for you with so many unanswered questions. 

My reaction to her being arrested was one of surprise. Did she feel the same fear and confusion I felt when the authorities descended on our home physically removing us with just the cloths on our backs. This less than 24 hours after we had lost you. 

I look at this picture and ask myself why?  This is not the same person that moved in with us so many years ago.
